Trade Wind Fields Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Take a wide grassy airplane landing field and surround it with woods and a scenic golf course. What do you get? A paradise for dogs and dog walkers. Dogs love the open grassland for chasing balls and each other. Walkers are grateful for the wide level paths that snake through woodlands and border the manicured Farm neck Golf Club.

The Farm Pond extension is a great way for off-road bikers to cycle to oak Bluffs Center. PLEASE NOTE: the airport is a working airstrip--dogs and people are not allowed on it. As unusual wildflowers and grasses flourish in this uncommon habitat, be careful to respect the protected flora and fauna at Trade Wind Fields."

"For Vineyard locals, Trade Wind Fields is definitely the doggie hangout. For visitors, it is a great place to bring your dog for an afternoon stroll or a morning jaunt. PLEASE NOTE: the airport is a working airstrip--dogs and people are not allowed on it. As unusual wildflowers and grasses flourish in this uncommon habitat, be careful to respect the protected flora and fauna at Trade Wind Fields. Many might think that taking a walk around an old airstrip sounds rather unexciting, but this classic sandplain grassland habitat and adjacent woodland provide an exceptionally beautiful place to take a hike. Watch for unusual wildflowers and grasses (bushy rockrose, purple needlegrass, sandplain blue-eyed grass, among others) that flourish in this uncommon habitat." Read more
